Ok, I found a source for the number mentioned, 74 billion: "Over all, Apple’s tax avoidance efforts shifted at least $74 billion from the reach of the Internal Revenue Service between 2009 and 2012, the investigators said. That cash remains offshore, but Apple, which paid more than $6 billion in taxes in the United States last year on its American operations, could still have to pay federal taxes on it if the company were to return the money to its coffers in the United States." http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/21/business/apple-avoided-billions-in-taxes-congressional-panel-says.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

And another one: "complex web off offshore entities" http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/technology/with-complex-web-of-offshore-entities-apple-avoids-taxes-senate/2013/05/20/a59daea6-c16c-11e2-bfdb-3886a561c1ff_story.html

Ben & Jerry's, yes the ice cream, are ardent democracy proponents.  They have circulated a petition to condemn a bill to do away with estate taxes all together. Another bill for the super rich in the USA, the 1%, to eliminate paying taxes on their extreme wealth.

" ... the Luftfahrtbundesamt (LBA), had a lack of staff, which could have limited its ability to carry out checks on planes and crew, such as medical checks."

Multiple determinism corresponds with resilience and bottom-up processing in neural systems.

"The Spiny Lobster results are consistent with determinism in that all of these numerous neural states lead to the same behavior. Each of these many neural states consistently generates the same result which means that the behavior in question is determined in multiple ways. These neural circuits are like multiple roads leading to the same city as in the phrase “All roads lead to Rome”. It does not matter what road you take, they always lead to Rome. Your destination is multiply determined.The many neural network configurations, neural circuits, that yield the same result provides a substantial degree of resilience to the spiny lobster by virtue of extensive redundant backup". Read more:
